Well, Then.

This last week has been the usual whirlwind that constitutes my life, and we can add to it a laptop that needed serious attention to be brought back from the brink of death, opening day for Little League, and three seriously time consuming consulting jobs, and well....then.

Here we are.  And here we love to be!

While we were away, Scotty had an adorable pre-school performance.  They sang a song about friendship and "It's A Small World".  He really belted it out, too!  Then they came up to the front and told everyone about what makes a friend so special.  Scotty said that friends sit nice during circle time.  What a suck up!  I happen to know for a fact that he's a fool during circle time.  I don't care.  Look!  He loves me!

In fact, I'm going to have to talk to him about sitting down with Tommy and explaining to him just exactly how to sucker a mommy.  Because, during the first game, Tommy was so serious he hardly even knew we were there!
Look at the face.  It was a pretty emotional day, actually.  He was crying at one point.  (There's no crying in baseball!!!)  But he was so upset that he didn't get a hit, and he was up at bat two whole times, and nothing!  So we had the batting average talk (again) and then I told him that his team had 24 at bats, and exactly one hit.  They won, but the first half of the first "official" kid-pitch Little League game?  Kind of brutal, dude.

I also just finished making the CUTEST thing(s) (if I do say so myself :0) but I can't share until I finish the rest of the top secret (that also happens to be an exceedingly late) project.  But for today, here I am, dipping a toe in and saying hi and dreaming of a beautiful spring week.  I'll take 7 more days, just like yesterday, pleaseandthankyou.  Here's to a dreamy week for all of us, in fact!


  1. I officially second that motion! Sun, the yard, dirt under my fingernails, nesting birds, a spring training game on the radio... More of that, PLLLLLLEEEEEEAAAASSSSSE!

  2. Hey Tommy, just remember failing 7 out of 10 times at the plate is considered "GOOD" in baseball terms and if you get a hit in your next AB, you'll be hitting a batting average of .333- well above "GOOD". Concentrate on putting the ball in play every AB and the hits will happen. Moose

  3. Oh sure make us wait a week ;) You won the draw...have fun shopping!

  4. Yes ma'am, Kelly! I can't get enough!!!! And Moose, that's exactly the kind of math that's going to keep this guy trying...It kind of broke my heart and cracked me up at the same time when he told me, "I just froze up there! It was wild!" haha!

    Linda ~ THANK YOU!!! :)

  6. Whoops, I'm glad I had that option to delete. It was bad. Very Bad. Anyway, I'm in the same boat, too! You know, the "really-late-finishing-a-top-secret-project" boat? Come sail away, haha!

  7. ha! "schell", we are pathetic! I love us!!! :)
